CALL for Projects: NOC WALPURGII FESTIVAL 2014 - Berlin (30th April 2014)

Image: 

Anarcha-feminist. Queer-punk. Anti-sexist. Anti-homophobic.
English:
This year again at the 30 of April the Noc Walpurgii Festival will take place in Berlin/Germany at Köpi Squat. Our aim is to support the struggle against sexism and homophobia and the promotion of the
presence of queers and females within the underground hc punk scene. The Noc Walpurgii festival started in 1996 in Warsaw, Poland, and is organized every two years since then. Besides having bands
performing, we would like to have this year also a wider non-musical program with performances, workshops, meetings, talks, artprojects. It´s important to us, that the projects fit into the festival
topic, that they are noncommercial and follow a diy-ethic. In order to write us, please use the contact-page on the website.

CALL: Invitation for Participation – D.I.Y. (queer-)feminist festival (Vienna, June 6-9, 2013)

Dear all!
We would like to invite you to participate in our self-organized D.I.Y. queer*_feminist super cool festival of awesomeness against Western bias :-) The idea to organize a queer_feminist festival originated among a small group of migrants* from this imaginary place called (South)Eastern Europe, looking for a space where they could engage in a critique of the hegemony of Western queer_feminist concepts and focus on self-representation, empowerment and networking. Since then, people from many different contexts and backgrounds agreed to work together to organize the festival. Our mutual goal is to bring together activists, artists, performers and (other) interested people from various feminist and LGBTIAQQ**- spaces and regions out of (South)Eastern contexts. Literally, we want to create a space for debating and examining representations, differences and imbedded power-relations.
